Advice on PFIC compliance - US taxes

To fellow Americans,
Do any of you have any experience dealing with PFIC (passive foreign investment company) compliance? This is something I have only just recently learned about, and it sounds quite tricky on the face of it. But all the advice I have seen online seems to come from advisors who earn their living by scaring you into paying for their services. I would like to get the "straight dope" on this topic.
Am happy to connect with you in this forum or via a private message.
Thanks, JW

Re: Advice on PFIC compliance - US taxes

Hi -- did you ever get any advice on this?
Just finding out about this here (as well as the hefty US taxes levied on international investors once they retire!)
Am in a bit of a panic.
